there's no change in the wind speed here. we're still looking at a very powerful category 4 hurricane. but the change in the direction here. it's kind of a north-northwest direction, which indicates a little bit of a jog more to the north than it does west. so, the idea here is this storm is beginning to make its turn. a quick look at the track. and that's very, very, very good news. but it's so subtle and so slight, that i wouldn't let anybody exhale yet. so, if you're watching the storm, continue to watch the storm. the idea is it's going to be working into the drier air and the colder water temperatures. so, once it's past north carolina, it will start to weaken. but i don't see a big change in the numbers. george? >> thanks, sam. we're going to turn, now, to british prime minister, tony blair. he was at the center of history. weathering the monica lewinsky scandal, with his political soul mate, bill clinton. and coping with the war in iraq. and the shock waves of the death of princess diana.
